For all of you who have dyed your hair before, is it true that if you have a light hair color and you dye it to a darker color, your original tone is ruined after that?
I've never dyed my hair because everybody has always told me that my hair color is great and almost impossible to get with products but I want a change, I have a grayish blonde hair and I want it darkish brown. I'll probably just do it once and after that return to my original. You think I might darken my original hair color or is that just a myth?

My hair is naturally a light brown, and for about 3 years, I kept it dyed a deep red. It looked nice, yeah, but keeping up with the roots was such a pain, and after a while I just got sick of it. So, I dyed it back to my natural tone, and haven't changed its color since. It's certainly possible to get your old color back after you've dyed it, but it does take a while for it to get completely back to normal. I had to dye it slightly darker than my natural shade in order to properly cover the red, so it wasn't until that darker shade grew out that I got my real hair color back again. However, your new hair that grows in will be unaffected by any previous dye or bleach job.
as many compliments as you seem to be getting on your current hair color, though, I probably wouldn't change it. Blonde hair is especially difficult, you see, because in order to get it back from a darker color, you have to either bleach it and redye or just wait until it grows back in normally. And bleaching will make your hair very brittle and unhealthy. I've never known a blonde who dyed her hair and ever got it back to looking just how it used to without just cutting it off very short and waiting. Just a fair warning there.0
